NC Republican state budget gives teachers and state employees bigger pay rises

RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) – North Carolina Republican Legislative Leaders Tuesday announced a state budget contract that includes larger pay increases for state employees than currently planned.

Senate Chairman Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) and House Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) unveiled the compromise on Tuesday, a day after Moore announced an agreement between the House and Senate.

The budget includes:

  • Most state employees would get a 3.5 percent pay rise, up from the currently planned 2.5 percent (going into effect July 1). There are additional salary increases for certain positions, e.g. B. in law enforcement.
  • Teachers would receive an average of 4.2 percent, as opposed to the 2.5 percent currently planned. There are also bonuses tied to student growth.
  • Non-certified school staff (cafeteria clerks, bus drivers) would either get a 4 percent raise or see their pay rise to $15 an hour (whichever is greater).

Gov. Roy Cooper (D) released the following statement ahead of the Republican leaders’ announcement:

“I am encouraged that both the House and Senate agree that North Carolina needs to expand Medicaid. An agreement must now be reached on this. I will review the full budget when it is released.”

This story will be updated as development progresses.
